President Donald Trump is endorsing Georgia Secretary of State, and candidate for Governor Brian Kemp in the GOP runoff election.

In a tweet released Wednesday afternoon, the President endorsed Kemp ahead of Tuesday's Primary election.

Kemp is up against Lieutenant Governor Casey Cagle for the Republican nomination for Governor.

Current Governor Nathan Deal gave Cagle his endorsement earlier in the week saying that he's the, "best candidate for that position as governor of this state."

The winner of the July 24th election will face Democratic nominee Stacy Abrams in November.

Voters have until Friday, July 20 to cast an early ballot in the runoff election.
